Phil Mickelson wins tournament-record fifth straight at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson wins tournament-record fifth straight at Pebble Beach

The steam coming off his head in the Sunday night gloaming at Pebble Beach was undoubtedly due to the frigid air that permeated the tournament, although few would be surprised if Phil Mickelson really was seething over the idea that he wouldn't be allowed to finish despite two holes to play in enveloping darkness.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

Casey, who also birdied 18 to finish a last-round 71, and Mickelson were the only players stopped by darkness in Sunday's hail-delayed final round, Mickelson with two holes remaining and a three-stroke edge over Casey, who resumed by making a three-foot par putt at 16. In second is Scott Stallings, who sits at -15 and has finished his tournament.

Hale Irwin, who won the 1990 edition of the US Open at 45 years and 15 days old, is the oldest US Open victor to date so the stats are really against Phil Mickelson, who turns 49 on the Sunday of this year's edition. He has gone 28 years since his first PGA Tour victory and his 44th, and he joined Tiger Woods as the only players to surpass $90 million in career earnings.

He also won the Pro-Am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx. I have such great memories here and I would love nothing more than to add to it, five months from now.

However, the 5-time Major victor hasn't been as animated on the golf course as usual, and he revealed that's down to his personal relationship with Casey.

Mickelson's first goal is that fourth green jacket and he believes that even now, at the age of 48, he has the power and the putting touch to give McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and the rest a run for their money in eight weeks' time.

This was a fantastic win for the 27-year-old, a protege of fellow Aberdonian and former Open champion Paul Lawrie. All four players return to Pebble along with numerous game's best, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jason Day.

As for that "longest event in PGA Tour history", it's a mark that seems destined to stand. Mickelson won at the course for the first time in 1998 and the tournament was suspended for six months because of a several days of poor weather on the Monterey Peninsula.

"The bottom line is I have to do well between now and then but I so want to be there", said McDowell who is 246th in the world and not yet qualified for the Masters or the US PGA. "This golf course, it looks very gettable [but] it can expose you".

"It's dark and we're going to have a good chance tomorrow to come out on fresh greens".

"I thanked Paul this morning because I sometimes in my own little bubble I don't see the big picture", Mickelson said. He closed with a 65 for a 10-under-par 278 total.
